We ordered the stove back in March. They told us it would take about four months for it to get here. We talked to the appliance store in June and I can’t remember what they told us but I think the dishwasher was supposed to be here in July, the stove in August and the fridge in December.
We haven’t heard anything from the appliance store so Vince called them this morning. The dishwasher is in but they knew that wasn’t my priority so they were holding that. Vince asked about the stove. The salesman had to call someone to check on it and call us back.
He called back and said “It’s going to be after the first of the year . . well after the first of the year!” My mouth dropped open. I cannot . . well, I can but I do not want to use that glass top stove for another 6 months.
Vince asked the guy if we could come in and pick something else . . just basically take whatever we can get. For what we paid for the GE Cafe stove, dishwasher and fridge, we could go with something less expensive, stainless seems easier to get than white, and replace those three plus the wall oven and microwave so everything matches. He said yes so we both changed clothes, I put on makeup, used the curling iron to tame the hair and off we went. We were about halfway there and the guy called. He said “You aren’t going to believe this but a truck came as we were talking and your stove is on that truck.” Even though the whole story sounds a bit fishy to me, I’m happy that my stove is here.
Next, we call the plumber . . three weeks til they can get here.
This is the point where I bite my tongue and keep my mouth shut but I know that no less than 10 times, I’ve asked Vince to go ahead and get the gas line installed so we don’t have to wait on that. Nope .. he’s in charge and he’d take care of that so now . . we wait to get the gas line installed and once the gas line is installed, we call back and it can take up to a week to get the delivery of the stove made.
I’m happy enough about the stove that I won’t complain about the gas line but . . dang it . . I would have had that line put in the day after we ordered the stove!
They’re still saying November on the fridge. I don’t even care when it gets here . . I just want the gas stove!
